Aquamarine is a pale-blue to light-green variety of the beryl family with its name relating to water and sea. The color of aquamarine can be changed by heat, with a goal to enhance its physical appearance (though this practice is frowned upon by collectors and jewellers). It is the birth stone of March.

Aquamarine is a fairly common gemstone rendering it more accessible for purchase, compared to other gems in the beryl family. However, there is a rarer deep blue variant called maxixe, but its colour can fade due to sunlight. The color of maxixe is caused by NO3. Dark-blue maxixe color can be produced in green, pink or yellow beryl by irradiating it with high-energy radiation (gamma rays neutrons or even X-rays). Overall, its value is determined by weight, color, cut, and clarity.

Aquamarine occurs in many countries over the world, most commonly found in granite pegmatites.
